R. Lynn Carlson, MD, IFMCP
Dr. Carlson has returned to MediCenter North! This is where his practice began and he is excited to return to the community.
Since the age of three, Dr. R. Lynn Carlson has spent the majority of his life in Alaska. He spent his summers fishing on his family’s beach setnet site and, after school and sports in the winter, he and his brothers would weld aluminum fishing boats with his father to sell to other fishermen. He always enjoyed science and pursued his medical education at the University of Washington. All through medical school and residency, Dr. Carlson helped to fund his education by captaining his fishing boat the “Connie Jeanne” during the salmon run each year in Bristol Bay, AK.
Dr. Carlson completed his residency in Emergency Medicine in Pennsylvania. Soon after he finished, he and his family moved back to the Kenai and he started practicing medicine in his hometown. Dr. Carlson has a passion for preventive medicine and focuses on keeping you healthy, as well as treating your immediate illness. He is also Emergency Medicine Board Certified. With his experience, he plays a big part in the urgent care portion of our clinic.
